The environmental contaminant 2,3,7,8-tetrachlordibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) belongs to the category of highly toxic, persistent organic pollutants that accumulate in animal fat and plant tissues. Today, background TCDD levels in human fat are showing a decreasing trend. The food chain is the main source of exposure in the human population. TCDD regulates the expression of a wide range of drug-metabolizing enzymes and has an impact on a large number of biological systems. The most pronounced effects… Expand
Identification of a unique gene expression signature in mercury and 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin co-exposed cells.
TLDR
By performing a comprehensive transcriptomic analysis of human bronchial epithelial cells exposed to Hg and TCDD individually and in combination, a subset of genes with altered expression only in the co-exposed cells are uncovered, providing new insights into theCo-exposure-specific pathogenic processes. Expand
2,3,7,8-TCDD neurotoxicity in neuroblastoma cells is caused by increased oxidative stress, intracellular calcium levels, and tau phosphorylation.
TLDR
The results indicate that TCDD exposure induces neurotoxicity in N2a cells by increasing DNA damage, oxidative stress and intracellular calcium levels, and indicates an important role for tau hyperphosphorylation in T CDD-induced neurotoxicity. Expand
Dioxins and Human Toxicity
TLDR
Dioxins are classified as known human carcinogens, but they also cause noncancerous effects like atherosclerosis, hypertension, and diabetes, and they place dioxins among the most toxic chemicals known to man. Expand
Effects of Polychlorinated Dibenzo-p-Dioxins, Polychlorinated Dibenzofurans, and Polychlorinated Biphenyls in Human Liver Cell Models (in vitro) and in Mice (in vivo)
TLDR
The analysis of hepatic gene expression patterns after a single oral dose of either TCDD or PCB 153 revealed that the altered genes fundamentally differed, and changes in gene expression were associated with different signalling pathways, in fact by AhR and CAR. Expand
Biosafety Issues in Laboratory Research
Dioxins is a compound family among persistent organic pollutants toxics produced by industrial wastes. 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo -p-dioxin (TCDD) is a typical representative of dioxins, which notExpand
Skin Effects of Dioxins
TLDR
A better understanding of the pathogenesis of TCDD intoxication on skin physiology and pathology may help develop more specific and effective treatments. Expand
The History, Toxicity and Adverse Human Health and Environmental Effects Related to the Use of Agent Orange
TLDR
Chronic persistence of dioxin in the human body may contribute to development of atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, vascular changes, and neuropsychological impairment several decades after massive exposure, however, such chronic effects are nonspecific and multifactorial. Expand
TCDD-induced changes in the expression of selected hypothalamic feeding-regulatory genes and mRNA quantification using reverse transcription qPCR
TLDR
Clarification of the mechanisms behind the wasting syndrome would yield information on an important facet of acute dioxin toxicity and open the way to using TCDD as a molecular tool to study the physiology of feed intake and body weight regulation. Expand
Exhaled breath condensate biomarkers reflect systemic changes in patients with chronic dioxin intoxication
Abstract2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is highly toxic and affects the cardiovascular system, brain, and skin by AhR-dependent and other mechanisms, as well as causing metabolicExpand
Early dioxin exposure causes toxic effects in adult zebrafish.
TLDR
The results show that exposures that produce little if any impact during development can cause severe consequences during adulthood and present a model for studying this process. Expand

Human health effects after exposure to 2,3,7,8-TCDD
TLDR
Of the many non-cancer health effects thought to be associated with 2,3,7,8-TCDD exposure, only chloracne, elevations in GGT and triglyceride levels, and alterations in FSH and LH were related to serum 2, 3, 7, 8- TCDD levels. Expand
Severe 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) intoxication: clinical and laboratory effects.
TLDR
A 2-year follow-up is presented including clinical, biochemical, hematologic, endocrine, and immunologic parameters monitored in two women, 30 and 27 years of age, who suffered from chloracne due to TCDD intoxication of unknown origin. Expand
Assessment of past occupational exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin using blood lipid analyses
TLDR
Estimating cumulative TCDD concentrations back-calculated to the time of exposure for all 254 members of the accident cohort correlated well with chloracne severity and should be helpful in assessing the relationships between various health outcomes. Expand
2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin plasma levels in Seveso 20 years after the accident.
TLDR
Women have higher TCDD levels than men in the entire study area, and this gender difference persists after adjustment for location within the zone, consumption of meat derived from locally raised animals, age, body mass index, and smoking. Expand
Human health effects of 2,4,5-T and its toxic contaminants.
TLDR
An association was found between the persistence of chloracne and the presence and severity of actinic elastosis of the skin, and there is an association between exposure and the history of gastrointestinal tract ulcer. Expand
Hepatic and gastrointestinal effects in an occupational cohort exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-para-dioxin.
TLDR
This study found no evidence of an elevated risk for clinical hepatic or gastrointestinal disease in a group of workers with high exposure to TCDD, however, T CDD-exposed workers with a history of sufficient alcohol consumption were found to have a statistically significantly elevatedrisk for an out-of-range GGT compared with referents. Expand
Blood levels of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in chemical workers after chloracne and in comparison groups
TLDR
Chloracne is considered to be a reliable indicator of heavy dioxin exposure in a cohort of herbicide production workers and will use its former presence in 159 cases as a substitute for exposure when investigating cancer morbidity and mortality in a multicenter cohort study. Expand

TLDR
All three scientists were found to have raised serum cholesterol but no other biochemical disturbances, and no porphyrinuria nor liver damage was demonstrated, so it seems likely that these delayed effects were in fact due to dioxin intoxication. Expand
Serum 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin levels of New Zealand pesticide applicators and their implication for cancer hypotheses.
TLDR
It is concluded that increased risks of cancer from brief exposure to phenoxyherbicides reported in other countries are probably not attributable to the TCDD that contaminates 2,4,5-T. Expand
Persistent health effects of dioxin contamination in herbicide production.
TLDR
The prevalence of neurological symptoms and signs of chronic liver disease were related to TCDD in blood and abnormal poryphyrins in urine, contributing to the evidence that chloracne is not the only chronic disease which can be related toTCDD exposure, even 23 years after exposure and despite high intersubject variability of T CDD half-life and other exposures.
